    Forum Rules

    These forums are for the discussion of Ubisoft games, including advice, feedback and general gameplay talk. We ask that all posts are civil, respectful and constructive – this ensures all visitors can enjoy and benefit from these forums, plus we can more easily collect feedback (be it positive or negative) to pass on to Ubisoft game developers.

    To this end, there are specific forum rules covering the sort of behaviour that is and isn’t acceptable here. While the general guideline of “Treat others as you would wish to be treated” applies, all visitors must also abide by these rules. If you do not do so your post may be moved, locked or deleted, and may also result in a temporary or permanent ban.

    Online Safety
    We strongly recommend you do not arrange to meet anyone from these forums. Always consult a parent or guardian if appropriate or speak to a Community Manager. You should also not give out personal contact details, including real name, phone number, email or home address. The internet offers numerous social sites that provide blogging, file sharing and message services and are safer than handing out personal contact information. You may wish to investigate theses options if you find the forum Personal Message (PM) function does not meet your needs for setting up clans etc..

    Inappropriate Content
    Gamers of all ages are welcome to view these forums. As such, any posts containing; profanity, obscenity, insults, personal attacks, accusations or abusive language will be edited or deleted and will result in a warning or, in severe or persistent cases, a ban from the forum.

    This forum also uses a language filter to remove words that we consider inappropriate for use here. Such words will be replaced with asterisks (*) or other characters. Working around this swear filter in any way, including using asterisks or acronyms, is still considered swearing and therefore not permitted. Signatures, avatars, banners, titles and other images must also follow these rules.

    Racial, religious or sexual slurs are likely to result in immediate banning. Discussion of software piracy in any of its forms is strictly not allowed on these boards. “Piracy” includes links to illegal downloads of games or methods by which to circumvent copy protection mechanisms.

    No Flaming
    This includes any kind of personal insult, flame or intimidation. Responding in kind to a flame message is viewed as equally unacceptable, regardless of who started it. If you believe you are being insulted or otherwise flamed by another poster, please PM a forum moderator or admin rather than responding. This applies to both written text and image posting.

    There is no need to turn disagreements into heated arguments. Rather than letting these threads become flame wars please agree to disagree or the thread is likely to be locked.

    No Trolling
    This includes
    • Creating threads for the sole purpose of causing unrest on the forums, chatrooms or gamelobbies
    • Causing disturbances in forum threads, chatrooms or gamelobbies, such as picking fights, making off topic posts that ruin the thread, insulting other posters
    • Making posts designed to or likely to get inappropriate responses.

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Internet) for more information.

    “Naming and shaming” suspected cheaters is also considered trolling given that it is rarely possible to prove guilt and only causes arguments. If you believe you have a strong case against a suspected cheater please contact the server operator (on PC), report it to the Ubi tech support team. or for console games, to the report a player page for the relevant console network (PSN or XBL)

    Final decisions on what is trolling will be at the discretion of forum staff.

    No spamming
    Repeatedly posting the same post or topic in a forum, or across multiple forums, is considered spamming. Such posts will be locked, edited or removed. Intentional off topic or nonsense posting is also likely to be considered spam and will receive the same treatment, especially if this takes an existing thread off topic. This applies to both written text and image posting which also includes Meme's.

    If you think of something else you want to add to the thread, please use the Edit ****on rather than making multiple posts in a row as this may also be seen as spamming, whether intentional or not.

    Stay on topic
    Please make sure your post is going in the correct forum. We have specific forums for each game, some of them with their own Off Topic area or Community Help section. Threads that are off topic, or become so, may be moved or locked.

    Private Threads
    This forum system allows users to create Private Threads, similar to Private Messages on other forums. While only invited users can normally view these threads, they are also subject to the same rules and moderation as public threads. As such these are also viewable by Forum Managers in instances where the PT is reported.

    No bumping
    Making short posts made with the sole intention of keeping posts near the top of the forum is called “bumping”. This raises forum traffic and clutter unnecessarily and moves more active threads down the page. As such it is not allowed and may result in the thread being lost and persistent offenders may have their posting privileges removed.

    Language
    As this forum is managed by Ubisoft US and UK teams we ask that all posts on this board are made in English so we can effectively moderate. Ubisoft official forums are available in other major European languages, you can find these linked from your local Ubi.com. We also ask that you avoid “txt spk” or posting in all caps as this can be considered rude or make posts difficult to read.

    Reporting Posts
    If you see a post that you think needs moderator attention, please report it by choosing the Post # and clicking on Report afterwards. While it is not always possible to deal with a reported post immediately, all reported posts will be dealt with accordingly if they require it. Abuse of the reported post system is subject to the same rules as abuse of any other system on this forum.

    External Content
    Anything linked to from these forums must follow by the same rules as any content directly posted here. This includes signature images, links and images.

    Signatures
    Signatures and avatars must not exceed set guidelines for both dimensions and file sizes. If they do so they will likely be removed by a moderator or admin, as will avatars or signatures using inappropriate images. Anyone re-posting an image, signature or avatar that was removed by a moderator or admin risks a temporary or permanent ban.

    For full details on Signature/ Avatar guidelines as well as details on how to post them check out THIS THREAD

    Quotes from other posts are also not allowed in forum signatures, purely because they are invariably used to ridicule other people, often other forum members.

    Duplicate Accounts
    Creating an extra account is not allowed on these forums and second or further accounts will be removed. Doing so to get around a temporary ban will also result in a permanent one. The only exception is if you wish to start a new account to change usernames (and therefore stop using your old one), however please notify a mod or admin before doing so. Character accounts (i.e. creating a duplicate pretending to be a fictional or real person), or accounts impersonating an Ubi representative, will earn an immediate ban. This also applies to using existing accounts to post lock messages or other actions impersonating a moderator. Ban decisions are also final and not up for discussion.

    Moderators and Forum Managers
    Forum Managers are individuals contracted by Ubisoft to assist with the running of these forums. They hold similar powers to Ubisoft Community Managers and are regularly kept informed on upcoming titles, patches and so on. They will pass on such information from Ubisoft wherever possible. Forum Managers are also constantly involved in reporting back community comments, suggestions, issues and concerns on all our titles. Community Managers are full time Ubisoft employees, part of their responsibilities including monitoring the forums and assisting/updating the mods and Forum Managers where possible.

    Community Developers are also Ubisoft employees who work in our development studios and form a bridge between the developers and gamers. They exist to inform you on updates and happenings with their respective games, as well as to take your feedback to the developers to help improve current and future titles where possible.

    Volunteer moderators are community members chosen to help with the day-to-day running and maintenance of the forum. Mod actions are not a topic for public discussion, if you have a serious issue to raise with moderation please contact a Forum Manager. Flaming them or their actions (this includes telling them how to moderate) is no more acceptable than insulting a regular user. We ask that mods receive the same civil treatment as other forum members as they put in a lot of time and effort into these forums. If you need to contact a moderator, community manager or forum manager, you can view that forum’s moderators under its title (e.g. Splinter Cell) on the main forum index.
